If you want to set up a command that allows your viewers to see exactly how many followers you have, then you have came to the right place. In this tutorial we are going to break down how you can create a !followcount command that shows your viewers your exact number of followers on your channel.

Let’s jump in and get started.

How To Set Up !FollowCount Command On Twitch

To set up the FollowCount command on your Twitch channel you will need to use a third party bot. In this tutorial we will be showing you how to set up the command with Nightbot. If you haven’t already created a nightbot account head over to Nightbot and create one.

Step 1 – Mod Nightbot

To ensure that night bot works on our channel we will have to first mod Night bot in our chat. This allows it to pull necessary information from your channel and return it in chat.

To mod night bot head over to Twitch and open you Twitch channel. To do this navigate to your Profile Picture –> Creator Dashboard –> Chat Box.

In the chat box type /mod nightbot

This will mod the Night bot chat bot in your chat allowing you to use commands in your stream.

Step 2 – Add A Custom Command In Nightbot (FollowCount)

In Night bot navigate to Commands –> Custom –> Add Command.

We now have to create our command. There is a few different options we need to fill in.

Command – This is what users will type into chat to return the number of followers your channel has. I recommend setting this to !followcount

Message – The message is what gets returned to the user when they enter the command in your Twitch chat. You can add whatever you like in here but I have added a template you can copy and paste below.

Our channel currently has $(urlfetch https://decapi.me/twitch/followcount/$(channel)) followers! Thanks for all the support :)

Userlevel – For this command you can set userlevel to everyone

Cooldown – You don’t want people to repeatedly spam the followcount command in chat so I would recommend setting cool down to a minimum of 60 seconds.

Alias – You can leave this blank

Below you can see how the command should look before clicking submit to save the command.

We can now test this command on our stream.

Step 3 – Test The !FollowCount Command

To test if the follow count command is working, head over to your Twitch chat and type in the !FollowCount command.

All you have to do to trigger the command is type !followcount in chat. As you can see below nightbot returns the custom message that we created including the number of followers on our channel.

Wrapping Up

That’s all there is to it. Now you viewers can see exactly how many followers your channel currently has and you get to thank them for supporting the stream.
